Can I just share with you guys how happy I am that sometimes prayers do go unanswered.
Anyway, since starting this new position I have been crazy busy. So busy I can hardly keep my eyes open after eight o'clock each night. (Why I have been neglecting this lovely blog.) I don't remember a time when I have been so challenged with something, but challenged in a good way.
One of the greatest things to come from this new endeavor is my sweet new ride.
I have wanted a Mini for about three years. While working from home I just couldn't justify the cost of an extra vehicle when we really didn't have a need.
Now I can justify it. The Captain was okay with me driving his truck when I was only going a few miles a day. But suddenly, I was commuting again.
Off we went car shopping. In all fairness I test drove a ton of stuff. It was only logical. Even though at the end of the day I was hooked on the idea of a cooper.
Saving my favorite for last, I had no intention of getting anything on this day. But alas, the cooper was too hypnotizing. Sort of like when I bought my first iPad.
Isn't he a beaut? Plus it's a convertible, which I thought I would never want. One drive and I was hooked.
Of course I named him Sheldon. He is a Cooper after all. It was only logical.
I took possession July 5. The weather didn't cooperate, so I have been unable to partake of the joy of driving with the top down. Today I might have had the opportunity, but in a moment of weakness I offered to let the hubs have him for the next two days. He has driven to a resort town close by to hang out with some friends. Yes, he is on vacation.
If nothing else, I should win wife of the year for this.
So, what do you think of Sheldon?
